NetVault won't let you specify wildcards inside the inclusion list, but you can use wildcards to generate an inclusion list automatically that includes the files you need.
You need to backup selected files, where using wildcards will simplify the process.
The 'find' command has the correct output. You can create a script that runs on the computer being backed up, before the job runs.
Here is an example of how to use 'find' to search the whole filesystem for *.conf, and put it in a file named inclusionlist in the root directory.
find / -name *.conf > /inclusionlist
You can also limit the search to a portion of the filesystem. Here is an example of creating an inclusion list that only searches /etc for *.conf files.
find /etc -name *.conf > /inclusionlist
